"We're thrilled to have worked alongside DocuSign employees for DocuSign Global IMPACT Day," said Giveback Homes Founder Blake Andrews (https://givebackhomes.com). "Volunteer hours by DocuSign employees helped us build six new homes for families in need during one of our Build Days in San Diego. Beyond volunteerism, DocuSign's product has been a lifesaver for Giveback Homes. As a startup, our team members travel frequently, so whether we're meeting with brokerages in San Francisco or on Build Trips in Nicaragua, DocuSign allows us to easily send and sign contracts when we're on the road so we can stay focused on our vision of making social good the social norm in real estate."
DocuSign IMPACT empowers employee volunteerism with three days paid-time-off annually for every employee. In addition, DocuSign IMPACT helps transforms charities to transform lives through the creation of the DocuSign IMPACT Foundation which will match employee donations, as well as product discounts on DocuSign for Nonprofits to help qualifying charities go fully digital to put more of every dollar towards good.
"I'm proud to be part of an organization where the culture and employees are so imbued with the spirit of delivering global impact," said DocuSign IMPACT Executive Director Amy Skeeters-Behrens. "To have nearly 600 employees around the world participate in a day of giving, to see charities from Giveback Homes in San Diego to Etgarim in Israel benefit from DocuSign employees' philanthropic drive is inspirational. I look forward to the continued impact of our employees as they put their character in action to make the world a better place."
